Shabbat Shalom: Toldot

Posted on November 20, 2020

Shabbat Greetings:

Torah Question of the Week: Have you ever been in the situation where there is only one of something, but two people who want or deserve it? How do you decide who will get it? In this week’s Torah portion, Jacob tricks Isaac into giving him the blessing intended for Esau, the first-born son. When Esau asks if Isaac has one for him, too, Isaac says he has already given that blessing away. In a situation like this, is it possible to find a compromise? How would you do it?

I hope we will see you at Kabbalat Shabbat services tonight (8:00 p.m.) or Shabbat morning services tomorrow (9:30 a.m.) or both! You are also welcome to attend the Bar Mitzvah of Brayden Glass, which will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday. Mazal Tov to Brayden and his family!

Shabbat Shalom!
